TIU bans French line judge for betting

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Topics: Social responsibility Sports betting Sports integrity Last week (1 December), Spanish player Enrique López Pérez – who reached a career-high ATP singles world ranking of No. 154 in 2018 and doubles ranking of No. 135 – received an eight-year ban and a $25,000 fine after the Tennis Integrity Unit found him guilty of three separate match-fixing events in 2017. Finally, the Unit announced this week it handed out a lifetime ban to Ukrainian player Stanislav Poplavskyy for match-fixing and “courtsiding” activities, while it also fined and banned Britain’s George Kennedy for a total of seven months. French line judge David Rocher has become the latest figure to be banned by the Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU), receiving an 18 month ban and $5,000 fine for betting on tennis matches. He was also found to have broken section F.1.b, which says “F.2.b: “all Covered Persons must cooperate fully with investigations conducted by the TIU”. Tags: Tennis Tennis Integrity Unit International Tennis Integrity Agency Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Rocher admitted to placing 11 bets on matches between January and October 2019, and was also found guilty of failure to cooperate with an investigation, despite contesting the charge. Anti-Corruption Hearing Officer Ian Mill QC found Rocher guilty. Rocher is the latest in a long list of those banned by the TIU in the last five weeks. First, two Bulgarian brothers, professional players Karen and Yuri Khachatryan, received lifetime and 10-year bans respectively after being convicted of five cases of match-fixing, nine cases of soliciting other players not to use best efforts and a repeated failure to cooperate with the TIU’s investigation. The line judge was found to have broken section D.1.a of the Tennis Anti-corruption Programme (TACP), which says “no Covered Person shall, directly or indirectly, wager on the outcome or any other aspect of any Event or any other tennis competition”. TIU bans French line judge for betting Rocher will be banned for six months for the betting offences and 18 months – of which four will be suspended – for the failure to cooperate. However, as the bans can run concurrently, the total length of the ban is 18 months with four suspended, starting on 6 December 2020. Rocher may participate in tennis events sanctioned by the sport’s governing bodies such as the ATP, WTA and ITF from 6 February, 2022. He was also fined $5,000, of which $4,000 is suspended. Then on 20 November another Bulgarian player, Aleksandrina Naydenova, was found guilty of partaking in match-fixing activity multiple times between 2015 and 2019 and given a lifetime ban. The TIU is to rebrand as the International Tennis Integrity Agency (ITIA) on 1 January 2021. For that year it will be responsible for betting integrity enforcement in tennis in 2021, before adding anti-doping under its remit from 2022. 9th December 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle Regions: France Sports integrity Email Addresslast_img read more

Anuvia partnering with international food company

Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Smithfield Foods and Anuvia Plant Nutrients teaming-up to develop and market bio-based fertilizer productsSmithfield Foods, Inc.and Anuvia™Plant Nutrients are pleased to announce a new partnership to create sustainable fertilizer from renewable biological materials collected from manure treatment systems at Smithfield’s hog farms. This project is part of Smithfield Renewables, the company’s new platform dedicated to unifying and accelerating its carbon reduction and renewable energy efforts.The project reuses organic matter found in hog manure to create a commercial-grade fertilizer that is higher in nutrient concentration than the original organic materials. Farmers are able to better manage nutrient ratios while using less fertilizer by applying precisely what they need for optimal plant growth. Because Anuvia’s products contain organic matter, nutrient release is more controlled, resulting in reduced greenhouse gas emissions and a smaller environmental footprint.Anuvia will utilize remnant solids from Smithfield that accumulate over time at the bottom of the anaerobic lagoons, basins designed and certified to treat and store the manure on hog farms. Anuvia, which specializes in the transformation of organic materials into enhanced efficiency fertilizer products, will manufacture and sell these commercial-grade fertilizer products to farmers nationwide.“Through Smithfield Renewables, we are aggressively pursuing opportunities to reduce our environmental footprint while creating value,” said Kraig Westerbeek, senior director of Smithfield Renewables. “Along with projects that transform biogas into renewable natural gas, this is another example of how we are tackling this goal on our hog farms.”“This is the beginning of a partnership based on a shared vision that will positively impact livestock and crop production,” says Amy Yoder, Anuvia Plant Nutrients CEO. “Our proprietary manufacturing process which converts organic waste into novel bio-based plant nutrients is both environmentally friendly and sustainable. Our products reduce leaching and put organic matter back in the soil. Our process is a prototype for a circular economy as we reclaim organic waste, convert and reuse on cropland. This relationship provides a new sustainable way for Smithfield to return its remnant solids back to the land for use on the crops grown to feed the hogs. The impact of this is extremely significant for hog production and the livestock industry. We look forward to helping achieve both Smithfield’s and Anuvia’s environmental goals.”Company-owned and contract hog farms in North Carolina will participate in this project. Smithfield will collect and begin the process by de-watering the waste solids before providing the remnants to Anuvia. Once acquired, Anuvia will pick-up and transport the material to their processing plant to create the fertilizer.About Smithfield FoodsSmithfield Foods is a $15 billion global food company and the world’s largest pork processor and hog producer. In the United States, the company is also the leader in numerous packaged meats categories with popular brands including SmithfieldⓇ, EckrichⓇ, Nathan’s FamousⓇ, FarmlandⓇ, ArmourⓇ, Farmer JohnⓇ, KretschmarⓇ, John MorrellⓇ, Cook’sⓇ, GwaltneyⓇ, CarandoⓇ, MargheritaⓇ, Curly’sⓇ, Healthy OnesⓇ, MorlinyⓇ, KrakusⓇ and BerlinkiⓇ.

French election: Class struggle confronts reaction

first_imgLike many other European countries and the United States, French society is tottering, reeling under a range of attacks. The government has imposed austerity and reduced many social services, including in education and health care programs. The poorest and most oppressed people have been hit with the worst cutbacks.Last year, the working class and youth activated a sustained response to these attacks with several general strikes and occupations, called “Nuits debouts” (night protests). The new “labor law” was the target of the general strikes. The so-called Socialist government of President François Holland had accepted the French ruling class’s demands to reduce the power of the French workers. Using an undemocratic maneuver, they got the new labor law through parliament without a vote.Once it became clear that the labor movement had been defeated in its struggle against the new labor law, the struggle of the French working class turned toward the elections.The French president is chosen in two rounds of voting. The first round on April 23 presents a wide spectrum of candidates. The second round on May 7 — a contest between the two candidates who get the most votes in the first round — is a vote “for the lesser of two evils,” or a “vote utile.” There are no electoral college delegates, proportional lists or single-member districts with just one round of voting. The candidate who gets a majority of the votes in the second round wins the election.Four candidates — Emmanuel Macron, François Fillon, Marine Le Pen and Jean-Luc Mélenchon — have a realistic chance of making it to the second round, according to recent polls. The “Socialist” Party candidate, Benoït Hamon, is far behind the four leading contenders and is fading fast.Interpreting poll figures is tricky since a substantial number of French voters intend to abstain. Many others are unsure about who will get their vote, even the week before the election.Emmanuel Macron set up his party En Marche! (Forward!) about 18 months ago while minister of the economy in the Holland government. He proclaims it is “neither left, nor right.” Macron was the main political force behind the new anti-worker labor law. The party represents the Eurocentric wing of the French bourgeoisie.François Fillon is the candidate of Les Républicains (The Republicans), France’s main center-right party. Under many names, it and the so-called Socialist Party have alternated in running the French government since the late 1950s. Fillon started the campaign season as the favorite, but his popularity declined after he was officially charged with paying his spouse and children for no-show jobs. He was also charged with accepting gifts of suits worth $13,850.Marine Le Pen has spent her life as a member of the Front National (National Front), which her father, Jean-Marie Le Pen, founded in 1972. He began his career as a French Army intelligence officer in the Algerian war for independence. As such, he was in charge of torturing Algerian freedom fighters.In 2011, Marine Le Pen removed her father as president of the National Front and deleted some of its openly fascist and anti-Semitic rhetoric, but left intact its racist and fascist principles. This party appeals to the most reactionary elements of France’s rust belt, who have faced austerity attacks on their jobs and social services.The National Front has dangerously attacked and scapegoated refugees for the country’s economic problems, whipping up Islamophobia and racism. Out of desperation, these migrants have traveled from the Middle East and Africa, including from former French colonies, fleeing wars, extreme poverty and unemployment. This far-right party has used attacks on the public as a pretext to call for stopping all immigration.‘A reproach I find totally tolerable’Jean-Luc Mélenchon is running as a candidate from France Insoumise (France Unsubjugated), an electoral coalition put together for the 2017 election. The French Communist Party endorsed his campaign. When the Fillon campaign charged him with being a “revolutionary communist,” he replied at an April 16 rally of 70,000 supporters in Toulouse, “It’s a reproach I find totally tolerable.” (New York Times, April 16)Mélenchon started the campaign season far behind in the polls. However, his ability to draw large, diverse crowds to his rallies, based on his policies which are particularly directed to solving youth unemployment and which attack the French ruling class, have increasingly brought him much support from youth, among others.Many analysts, including Adam Nossiter of the New York Times, have raised the possibility of a Mélenchon-Le Pen contest in the second round. This would be a nightmare for the French ruling class which is pushing for a candidate who represents their interests. Neither Le Pen nor Mélenchon would do that: Le Pen opposes a united Europe from the right, and Melenchon, is against government austerity cutbacks from the left.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Market Square set to be renovated

first_imgSGA brings ‘It’s On Us’ to campus in joint Big 12 initiative Twitter Robert Carr Chapel holds Election Day service printTCU Dining Services discussed plans for a complete renovation of Market Square at the Student Government Association House of Representatives meeting last week.Michael Dahl, General Manager of Dining Services, told the representatives that Market Square, the main dining area for students located on the second floor of the Brown-Lupton University Union, was originally designed to serve about seven million meals.Through the spring of 2016, they had already served over 11 million meals.According to Dahl, talks have already begun to completely overhaul Market Square.The renovations could begin as soon as summer 2017, but depending on a number of factors, including other campus construction, could be delayed until summer 2018.In the meantime, Dining Services is making an effort to make Market Square less crowded and a more enjoyable experience for students.Customer Service Manager Eric Davis said he and the staff are aware that the crowds during popular meal times are an issue for students in Market Square, and they want to explore all available avenues to remedy the problem.With the addition of “meal exchanges” to all unlimited meal plans, Dining Services is attempting to encourage students to eat meals at other locations across campus, such as the King Family Commons and Smith Hall.Meal exchanges can be used at any dining location on campus, aside from Chick-Fil-A.All unlimited meal plans are equipped with 10 meal exchange swipes, while the Flex 7 and Flex 12 plans come with 50 and 100 exchange swipes respectively.Dining Services hopes the meal exchange effort will also take some of the burdens off of the facilities in Market Square, which will keep it well-maintained and preserve it for longer.For more information on renovations to Market Square, meal plan details, dining locations on campus and any other dining related information, visit the TCU Dining Services website.

Journalist murdered in Michoacán, authorities failed to act after being told of threats

first_img MexicoAmericas The body of Enrique Villicaña Palomares, a teacher and columnist for the daily La Voz de Michoacán, was found in Morelia, in the southern state of Michoacán, yesterday morning, five days after he was kidnapped. His throat was cut.His employers told Reporters Without Borders that the Michoacán state justice department failed to take any action after being notified two weeks ago that threats had been made against him.Villicaña was the fifth journalist to be murdered in Mexico this year. His death came the same week that another Michoacán journalist, Ramón Ángeles Zalpa of the daily Cambio, was reported missing.The motive for Villicaña’s murder remains to be determined. His employers said they were not sure it was linked to his work as columnist. Regardless of the motive, the state justice department’s inaction was reprehensible if it was indeed aware of the threats against him. Will the federal justice department investigate both the murder and the failure to take action?His death brings the number of journalists murdered in Mexico since 2000 to 62. Another 10 journalists have gone missing since 2003.__________9.04.10 – Newspaper journalist missing after reporting attack on indigenous communityRamón Ángeles Zalpa, a reporter for the Cambio de Michoacán newspaper in the southern state of Michoacán, has been missing since the afternoon of 6 April, bringing the total number of disappearances of journalists in Mexico since 2003 to ten.Ángeles has not been seen since leaving his home in the town of Paracho by car to go to the National Pedagogic University, where he is also a teacher. His disappearance comes just five months after fellow newspaper reporter María Esther Aguilar Cansimbe of El Diario de Zamora went missing in Michoacán. She has not been found.“He did not return home,” a member of his family told Reporters Without Borders. “We began contacting his university colleagues in an attempt to find him. Then we called the newspaper, Cambio. They said we should report his disappearance to the authorities.”The family reported him missing the next day to the public prosecutor’s office in Paracho, where Ángeles has been the newspaper’s correspondent for the past 10 years. The Michoacán state prosecutor’s officer told Reporters Without Borders an investigation was under way in the Paracho area, so far without result.A member of the Purépecha indigenous community, Ángeles wrote an unbylined article for the newspaper on 18 March about an armed group’s attack on an indigenous family. “It could be the reason for his disappearance,” a member of the newspaper’s management told Reporters Without Borders. “We don’t know if he had received any threats, but he asked us to run one of his articles without a byline three months ago because of problems within the community.”One of Mexico’s most dangerous regions for the media, Michoacán is the epicentre of the offensive against drug trafficking launched in December 2006 by President Felipe Calderón, who is himself from the state.When Reporters Without Borders visited Michoacán in July 2009, it talked to representatives of the Purépecha community who have been harassed by the authorities for launching a community radio station that they tried in vain to legalise (read the report).Four or possibly five journalists have been murdered in Mexico since the start of this year. A total of 61 have been murdered since 2000. Honduras and Mexico currently rank as the western hemisphere’s two most dangerous countries for the media.
